Singapore will receive a pair of male and female Giant Pandas from China as part of a joint collaboration to promote giant panda conservation, raise public awareness of conservation and implement a giant panda breeding research programme. The pandas are symbolic of the close relationship between Singapore and China as the Republic celebrates the 20th Anniversary of friendly Sino-Singapore relations.
On the 15th anniversary of our entry into China, CapitaLand is honoured to pledge a conservation donation to support the 10-year collaborative programme to promote giant panda conservation. CapitaLand is privileged to be a part of this fostering of stronger cultural links and bilateral understanding between Singapore and China.
CapitaLand strives to be a good corporate citizen both in Singapore and in the overseas communities which we operate. The conservation donation of the giant pandas is yet another testament of CapitaLand’s long-term commitment to China.
